Cons: "I am still trying to get a refund from the airline for a flight that they knew I was never going to take. I will never use any sort of third-party service for booking anything again. What is the point using it if it will be zero help when I did not cause the changes that occurred??"

Cons: "Avianca wouldn’t let me board because gate agents couldn’t find return trip in system. Only had a week’s vacation and lost a full day to be in Costa Rica. Then had same problem going back. I’ll never book Avianca and never use kayak to.book any airline"
Pros: "Great costumer service. Nice to have food aboard too, even for short flights."
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "entertainment"
Pros: "They don't feel cheap like the USA airlines these days. Free entertainment, real food, free alcoholic drinks. Pilot gave my kids a tour of the cockpit and gave them a wings pin and a little toy airplane. Flight attendants are kind and efficient. AND they were the cheapest option. I want to always fly them if possible!"
Pros: "no problems on flt"
Cons: "everything was fine"
Pros: "Abbording."
Cons: "For price they dont give food."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First, the departure terminal didn't show up on the reader boards until it was almost time to go, so I had to sprint down to our gate. Then, they boarded by zones, but I had no idea what zone I was supposed to be in and it was nowhere on my ticket. Anywhere. Then, when I finally decided to go try to board, they wouldn't let me because they said I didn't have a return ticket. In fact, I had proof of onward travel in three different forms. But they insisted that I had to have a flight as proof of leaving Guatemala and assured me that customs would prevent me from entering. They also said I had 5 minutes to book something or I would miss the flight. No one ever paged me to discuss this prior to departure! And do you know how much Guatemala asked about my onward travel? Zero. Nada. In the fluster of buying an almost $400 ticket, I clicked to book through a third party that doesn't allow refunds. Fortunately, after I landed I called them right away to cancel and managed to make it happen since the ticket hadn't been issued, but if I had failed at that it would have been at least $130 when all was said and done. Ride was uncomfortable, flight attendants we're rude and impatient, and I was ignored for food service."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Not individual TV Different seat for the other ticket Issues with the hand bag in the moment of boarding"
Cons: "There is not even a USB available..."
Pros: "Good food, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight from Bogota was delayed"

Cons: "The price - for a short distance fliht the price-tag was pretty steep."
Pros: "Flight crew was lovely, I was surprised to learn we received lunch on such a short flight, and make sure you get to the terminal early as the shuttle you to the plane. I would definitely fly Avianca again!"
Cons: "Baggage Handling, baggage did not come, at least the"
Pros: "I happened to get the row behind first class, so there was more leg room."
Cons: "The seat I was in felt like it only had a few millimeters of cushioning and was very hard. Pretty rough for a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "The aircraft are modern and well marinated and the flight and cabin crew are very attentive. There is meal service in all cabins!"
Pros: "As a rider enjoyed also many food provided thasn asny airline."
Cons: "Service of no question."

Cons: "I think it was a little more expensive than expected."
Pros: "Nice on flight attention"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "they put me up in a hotel for the day"
Cons: "THEY CANCELLED THE FLIGHT WITHOUT GIVING ANY REASON. DIDN'T NOTIFY ANY PASSENGERS UNTIL THEY ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT FOR THIS 6AM FLIGHT. NEXT FLIGHT WASN'T FOR MORE THAN 14 HOURS LATER."
Pros: "food and beverage service on such a short flight."
Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "Forced to watch only 1 movie for the crew, and the seats eere not as comfortabale"
Pros: "Being from the US, airline customer service has really gone down hill. Avianca employees were so helpful, efficient and corteous. They even gave us breakfast on a 45 minute flight!"
Cons: "My passport was not due to expire for the NEXT 4 months AFTER my come back day The lady from Avianca didn't let me board due to my passport expiring 4 months after my return day. I had to pay for a 24 hours expedite / rush passport. ALSO, once I got my new passport (17 hours later) I was told that I had to pay $170 penalty for moving my departure day and $680 because I had to adjust to the new ticket price. At that point I decide to buy a new ticket with a different airline. AVIANCA SUCKS!!! They are NOT very accommodating at all. Will not recommend this agency and I WILL NEVER ever again will use their service."
Cons: "Got an email saying my flight time was pushed back 2 hours, flying from Flores to Guatemala City. This meant that I would not make it to Guatemala City in time to catch my flight back to the U.S. As a result I had to cancel that flight and forefeit over $300, AND I had to forfeit the $120 I paid to Avianca. So, Avianca just randomly decides to significantly change flight times and it costs me over $400, AND without a way home. The submission to consider even a partial refund was rejected in a matter of days. This is the worst airline ever and you should never ever rely on a flight with them."

The chairs are very small. I don’t get any emails with this airline on status of trip.

You made me miss this flight, you are stranding us in Houston, 4 1/2 hours from Dallas.

Cons: "Keep going same detection"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Lack of crying babies and lack of sleep seats too close lack of comfort"

Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "All around quality Airline..."
Cons: "Redundant security checks, even at the gate area!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. I was really thirsty and I kept asking for water. He should have just given me a small bottle. Also need more than 4 Bollywood movies. This was a returning flight after 2 weeks and it had the same 4 movies which I had already seen."
Cons: "I had a 14 hour layover in istanbul airport. Arrived at midnight and flight wasn’t until 2 pm the next day. I just assumed that they would give me a hotel. Come to find out thats wasnt the case when I landed. Given all kinds of reasons/excuses. The guy at the transfer desk told me”you should have known that your layover was this long since you booked it”. Will have second thoughts about flying Turkish again. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Might stick with Emirates or Qatar."
Cons: "The air conditioner on the plane was not working making the flight uncomfortably hot the entire flight."
Cons: "passengers with seats in the back of the plane should be boarded first."

Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."
Pros: "I enjoy flying with Turkish Airlines, because of the staff and great food options, but this time I was starving, to be honest, as the flight was almost 13 hours, and we ate like once or twice. Then.. I had to beg to water all the time. Why would not you provide with plenty of water for such a long flight? This made my flight not great. Boarding process.. HORRIBLE. Took me 1 hour to pass 50 meters of space with endless checkings. Never seen this before."
Pros: "upon checkin I received a seat w extra legroom for both flights"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Fantastic food and service"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Lack of air conditioning made it hard to breathe coupled with cramp seating made it unbearable"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was kind, accommodating, and polite. Free alcoholic drinks helped with the long list of negatives aspects of the flight."
Cons: "Every flight was 30+ minutes late. Crew members at the gate were consistently on their phones and delayed service substantially. Not only am I incredibly frustrated that I could not bring my laptop onboard to do work, but the fact I wasn't told until right at boarding and it took extensive time to reclaim it makes Turkish airlines on par with Ryan Air for inconveniencing its customers. At baggage claim, the crew loaded our baggage on the incorrect track, making it take even longer to receive it. Seats and leg room are sub par. As someone who is 6'3, when the person in front of me put their seat back, I was forced to take a metal bar on the back of their seat to my knees (no matter the position). I will be recommending to both family and friends that they should avoid this airline at all costs."
Cons: "Could not order my special meal in advance, because of turkish airlines website problems, and ended up fasting"
Pros: "Food is excellent."
Pros: "Despite the computer regulations the THY handled it smoothly in Istanbul. In Atlanta we had to wait at least half an hour to get them back. Service was good, till the end of the flight restrooms were clean. Besides they offer 2-luggage policy. I try to use them as much as I can. Thanks THY"
Pros: "Excellent service, staff and food. All flights ran smooth, food and beverages were great and service from the crew was beyond great. During the fight, besides the food and drinks, we had lots of entertainment and games in the tv devices. I will definitely fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future."
Cons: "They had to reset the entertainment system multiple times"
Pros: "Movie selections. Larger displays. Comfortable seats. FOOTREST."
Cons: "When going from US to India, food was excellent. But when traveling from India to US, the food was not good at all."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't give food 5 stars though, because compared to my previous experience, quality is less than usual. I always fly on Turkish airlines and I like it overall. Security at Istanbul airport is great. Better than anywhere else."
Cons: "Quality of food is less than the previous experience"
Pros: "Boarding was on time, the crew was helpful."
Cons: "The entertaintment screen at my seat wasn't able to play videos. The comfort would be excellent if there would be a foot support."
Pros: "Same asabive"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, great service and very kind attendants, great food, accommodating comfort for the long trip I had. Definitely the best airline experience I have ever had and all for an incredible price, under $600 to fly from Miami to Rome!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Food"

Pros: "the service"
Cons: "the entertainment"
Pros: "Checkin and time"
Cons: "Food was meh."
Pros: "I liked everything about this flight. As a first time international flyer, I couldn't have asked for a better Airline. They definitely went above and beyond to provide a great experience and vacation!!"
Cons: "The only suggestion would be more comfortable seats. Although, when flying for 13 hours any seat will feel uncomfortable. Turkish Airlines did an amazing job providing essentials to make us as comfortable as possible. I would definitely recommend this airline to others."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has some of the best amenities of any airline: great meals (and often), clean planes, plus two free checked bags for flights between Middle East and USA."
Cons: "The plane was overbooked with MANY seats having been doubly assigned. After more than half an hour we were given a new seat assignment (in first class! Business class had already been filled with other double bookings!). They did their best to accommodate everyone though and the remainder of the flight was very pleasant."
Pros: "Nice food for 80 minites flight"
Cons: "Crew should be a bit more friendly"
Pros: "Great service, awesome crew, delicious food, wonderful entertainment. They know how to take care of the people!!! My favorite aorline so far !!"
Cons: "No leg space for tall people, alas"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "There was a weather delay and Turkish airlines is very strict and unforgiving even when there are effected, They cancelled the entire ticket due to weather related delays. If you use Turkish Airlines you are entirely on your own. They mad us buy an entire new ticket."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. Stiching placement is very bad and hurts. We had to turn back and switch plane after some technical issue. We landed in Budapest with more than 3 hrs delay."
Pros: "Staff was very nice and friendly. Overall, it was a good flight"
Pros: "Fast. Tasty food. Good movies. Great Service."
Cons: "N/A"

It did not allow me to check in and left seats in advance or get a boarding pass. When specifically asked agent at gate for the row that had extra leg room, as my so. Is 6’4” she gives us a row where the seats do not even incline nor is there any extra room. Also the temp in Avon was high, making many passengers sweat Improve customer service !

The flight was on time. Delta was very communicative as far as checking in, luggage, boarding ect. I was traveling with an infant, it would’ve been nice if they helped us out with an aisle seat.

Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Amazing Crew, very friendly"
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."

Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"
Cons: "Got delayed"
Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"
Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."

Cons: "We ordered special meal, and it was even confirmed in the boarding pass but it was never delivered on board.... attendant said they did not get any special meal"
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "crew was friendly"
Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"

Cons: "The seats are a bit cramped for long international flights."
Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."
Pros: "The service was good, employees friendly and helpful. The plane was surprisingly nice for such a short flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable, great entertainment selection"

Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Flight was on time; captain was clear and funny."
Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"
Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Staff smooth flight great landing and free movies"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Pros: "Everyone was great"
Cons: "The arm rests on both flights where impossible to lift to get out of our seats, the headsets had a lot of static, the head rest was broke on one side, the food to Germany was fine but back was horrible. Within 20mins of take off you were out of most alcohol and the wine was horrible."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Going into the security check point (immigration) lost my connection from Atlanta to Richmond Va there was just a few CBP officers working at that time but other than that was great"

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Economy seating is very tight and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Overall it was good"
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Pros: "Normal flight. WestJet is a great airline to travel on."
Pros: "The crew was very patient to get all the passengers' needs from gate-to-gate. The flight was very smooth, landing to takeoff, and arrived on-time!"
Pros: "Flight was late, crew didn't do anything to expedite boarding and it took the longest I have ever seen to board a plane."
Cons: "Boarding process was slow and chaotic"
Cons: "Like all airlines it would be nice if there was an extra inch between the seats. Also, unfortunately the video wasn't working."
Pros: "The crew members were extremely kind and caring"
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Boarding time. Flights on time"
Cons: "Amazing"
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "The Crew was great"
Cons: "Let my golf clubs fly at no charge. Seat update at check in at no charge."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Good leg room clean airplane"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "very poor customer service boarding and in flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight didn’t get cancelled. We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because it came from Toronto and it needed to be cleaned."
Pros: "On time, free coffee, free pretzels"
Cons: "Going home."
Pros: "It wasnt bad"
Cons: "I didnt like that you changed my flight last minute (20 hours before flying) from WestJet to Delta. And you changed it from a flight to Toronto to a flight to Seattle. Which made it an International flight, causing me to have to be at YVR airport earlier.."
Cons: "Super Cold airplane and it’s not the only west Ket that was freezing. the crew kept skipping my row for drinks for some reason. the landing was rough."
Pros: "Wonderful friendly and helpful ground staff and crew."
Cons: "1 hour delay in boarding due to mismanagement of scheduled maintenance. If more time was needed, please do not schedule/post early flight time. I could have used that time to roam Vancouver."
Cons: "I had safety concerns on the flight from YVR to Toronto because seated in the exit row were two individuals who were brought to the gate assisted on a cart and had to wait for assistance to get on and off the flight. They had very poor ambulation which made me nervous as these people have agreed, by sitting in the exit row, that they are able and willing to help in the case of an emergency evacuation. This was not a safe situation and was noted by several passengers."
Pros: "The manager who finally helped me was friendly and listened the entire time even when I was angry. She was concerned and helped me the best she could. The stewards are always friendly"
Cons: "There was only one agent on to check tickets. I was in line for 45 minutes and when I got to her, she just said over and over, there is nothing I can do, your flight time was just cut off. I would have to wait until the flight the next day. Even though I had no bags and there was still 35 minutes before take off. I also told her I knew I would be late and so spoke to someone from Westjet he night before. She smiled like I was lying to her. Lines should not be so black and white. If she would have just processed my ticket I would have had 35 minutes to get to my gate instead of 10. When you are flying with half full planes there should really be better ways to manage customer service."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited to what was being broadcast on regular cable channels. No movies or on demand content were available. Assigned seats were different than what was reserved during booking."
Pros: "The crew were very amiable and one member in particular was quite funny during the seat belt demonstration. First one I've paid attention to the entire time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold and seats were quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was fine with the flight except for the substantial delay of an hour in taking off."
Cons: "It was late taking off without too much explanation except they were waiting for a delivery of fuel it seems. We just sat in the plane for all that time. I wish they could have informed us earlier so we could have just waited at the airport."
Cons: "They used the rough air condition story to hip us out of full service, The conditions were fine . I bought the plus and did that because of a food option. They ripped me off Thanks Bryan ELLIOTT Previous flyer Lost my trust"
Pros: "I was given a nice seat with plenty of leg room by the emergency exit ."
Pros: "Price was perfect."
Cons: "Airlines don't have small tv's to watch and give out cheap snacks. Flairaire is so cheap you even have to buy your beverage unless it's a glass of water. Wasn't overly impressed with this airline. Also getting your itenairy online was also difficult. I had to change email information and call customer service which was in Spanish not English language. Then while lining up at the airport to process and check bags there was no computer to self serve and get through the line up faster and efficiently. The main clerk that helps with the line up was rude to passengers. Stating that on a domestic flight you need to be 2 hours ahead of boarding. Which most of us were a good 90 minutes to pre boarding. All of the struggles can be avoided with self serve check-in and prepaid bag check. The flight and crew were friendly and pleasant."
Pros: "No much.."
Cons: "To start.. due to your company combining two out going Toronto flights in Vancouver and then being late off the ground in Vancouver because if that we missed our connecting flight in Toronto to Ottawa. This in turn made us miss a very important appointment in Ottawa. I’m sure the company loves that they saved money by combining those flights however you flunked the test with me. All the corporate could care less about me missing my flight after they look at the bottom line but I will be taking my $1600 plus money elsewhere in the future because of the aggravation, frustration and I don’t care attitude that your company has provided me. I’ll I want to do is get back to Vancouver in my return flight hopefully put most likely on time with my two girls and forget that your company does exists. Thanks for the headaches and goodbye.."
Pros: "Snacks and service. Left on time."
Cons: "Seats didn't have charging slots."
Pros: "Hannah was a lovely accommodating woman thourghly enjoyed her service, i slept the whole way to Prince George. Crew was welcoming and accommodating."
Cons: "Didnt know i bought west jet plus seats. Enjoyed my service though. May think of buying plus again some time soon on one of my up comming trips"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was supposed to start at 10:20, but was delayed for at least 30 with no updates. In fact, they were still showing the flight as leaving on time up until the last second, which is not ok. Gotta keep the passengers updated folks!"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and the plane was not packed like the previous one, so it was good there was room to stretch out the legs."
Cons: "Having to board the plane walking outside.It was raining and there were puddles everywhere. Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Some of the people who helped with wheelchair assistance for my dad were kind."
Cons: "1. I previously asked for wheelchair assistance for my father and when we dropped off our bags the agent said she would get someone and told us to sit in the waiting area. After five minutes no one came so I went to the assistance desk and they said they hadn't been informed so they sent someone right away. If I hadn't been there to ask, I don't know how long my mom and dad would have sat there. 2. The man who wheeled my dad to the gate was very nice and he said he arranged for all of us to sit together, which was nice because I wasn't able to sit with my parents since we weren't able to choose the same row when we booked. When we boarded, we found out that the seats hadn't been changed, and the person who previously booked the seat beside my parents refused to move so I sat in the row beside them. These problems were minor but they highlighted a lack of communication between staff and the attendant dealing with us wasn't the most friendly either. I used to fly westjet in the early days when I still lived in Canada and I've noticed that the level of service has gone down. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and space to comment. Asunción Perez"
Pros: "Flight was delayed hours. Met the most amazing man on the flight ahead of me to Calgary. He waited at the airport for my flight to land. Sometimes delays are just meant to be. Lots of commuting travel in our future..."
Pros: "Quick flight, boarding in Vancouver easy, close to security, it crowded."
Cons: "Connection in Toronto was tight. The flight to bos boarded late so we didn’t miss it but we cleared security and customs to US and ended up there 5 min after scheduled pre boarding time."
Pros: "Actually,and sadly, not very much."
Cons: "These guys just will not take any action to seat you next to the people you would like to sit with, even if you are married to them and have been for over 30 years! No amount of asking nicely will get you any action at all. Six hour flights and you get a coffee and cookie. Flight stewardess makes you wait in the aisle behind row 3 for the bathroom - sure, just stand there and tower over some other poor traveller, don't stand right next to me - I'm a flight stewardess for goodness sakes! Having flown professionally, and for business and leisure for over 40 years I offer this advice - pick another airline - these guys do not deserve to be in the business."
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "I had to pay for earphones. Even if I didn't want the earphones I couldn't shut off the tv screen which really bothered me. Will you, in he future,charge us for using the washroom facilities?"
Pros: "On time departures and arrival."
Cons: "Internet didn’t really work."
Pros: "Staff were so friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, ample room, ability to charge devices. On time"
Cons: "Appalled that I was approached by two flight attendants separately to turn off my light in order to accommodate another passenger as the light was bothering them on a night flight. I pay premium pricing for the Plus seat so I have extra room to work. I chose not to turn off light in order to work, then flight attendants allowed the passenger to approach me. Really unacceptable to put me in uncomfortable interaction, making me play bad cop. I was sitting behind passengers talking loudly who were using profanity. My solution? Earphones. This is a commercial flight - offer passengers eye covers, some solution, or tell them to deal with it, or tell them to charter a private plane. Don’t tell us to sacrifice what we pay for, because you can’t do your job. Lost a loyal customer."
Pros: "We liked how friendly the staff was. Liked the priority boarding, food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats. My bum hurt at the end of our flight. Also we paid for our wifi and it was incredibly slow at loading any website. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Cons: "Got there 2 minutes after check in closed and wouldn't let us fly"
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "Start the flight a bit earlier than scheduled, so we arrive a bit earlier too. The flight is smooth."
Pros: "online checkin, fast boarding (a total of only 27 passengers undoubtedly made boarding much quicker), had extra space due to the sparse flight; smooth flight, good refreshments, pilot did a good job of keeping us updated on runway/gate status"
Cons: "on board crew didn't seem interested; empty cup was never picked up; upon leaving the aircraft (after a 30 minute delay due to a problem at our gate) none of the crew said as much as goodbye or thanks. I know it was a late flight with very few passengers, many of whom may have slept, but as such I thought the crew should have been more attentive and friendly at departure. A disappointing experience."
Cons: "West Jet personnel did not give any information about the customs process for connecting flights that I would face in Vancouver or the requirement to go through another security check between West Jet flights. I was told that I should simply go to the next gate to board the plane for Los Angeles -- and that I would do customs in the USA - so the info person sent me to retrieve my luggage (wrong info) and I ended with a 45 minutes anxious trek through the Vancouver airport! Once I found my gate, the West Jet personnel could not have been more kind."
Pros: "Late departure, later arrival. Seats did not recline. Staff insisted we would not be late, no need to contact awaiting family, no updates (even as we missed boarding time by 20+ minutes and plane still required de-icing)... end result 1 hour 40 minutes late"

Flight was delayed 45 minutes, came to LA - broken gate, 30 minutes later re-parked to the new gate, total close to 2 hours late.

When they allow the baggage handlers to destroy your luggage, how can you read it anything other than horrible. Brand new suitcase. And a big fuck you from aeromexico

Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."
Pros: "On time as planned!"
Cons: "Food was ok."
Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "Boarding, it was organized chaos with having to show your passport verification then get in another line to board."
Pros: "The flight was fast and with no delays"
Cons: "They charged me extra 14 USD for checking in, I had never being charged extra for that."
Cons: "Excelente flight"
Pros: "Plane arrived earlier then expected. Waited for about 35 minutes before exiting the plane."
Cons: "Schedules, schedules, schedules. What is the point of having them if they are not followed. People plan around schedules, while it is always good to on a few minutes earlier, what is the point if one is trapped inside the plane. I have a returned ticket, hope the service will improve."
Pros: "No, the crew was not friendly, a little bit rude"
Cons: "Food its too bad and the crew are so rude, no friendly, needs some training about service and being nice"
Pros: "I love to fly with aeroMexico. service and safety."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "Again, that you managed to be on time and that a 45 minute connection went flawlessly."
Cons: "I was worried about traveling with a fractured humerus to Guadalajara. The crew took an extra step to make sure I was comfortable and moved me to the first row without asking to be moved. That was a huge relief knowing that if I had to use the restroom I didn’t have to wake up anyone."
Cons: "24hrs in advance, the flight was delayed over 6hrs"
Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."
Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."
Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"
Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"
Pros: "Got the drinks and snacks out quickly."
Pros: "On time. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food too salty"
Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"
Pros: "All members of the staff were very helpful and kind"
Cons: "The ability to reserve emergency exit seats because I am large."
Pros: "Overall great experience."
Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"
Pros: "No waiting at the counter. Personal assistance. TSA preference. Free coffee and cookie.Thanks!"
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "Well organized boarding and time efficient"
Cons: "Food mediocre"
Cons: "My flight was changed..."
Cons: "Too many gate changes. They changes gates atleast four times for each flight. And long wait(more than an hour for each flight) at the boarding queue.Even the business class seats were very dirty. No vegetarian food. The TV remote did not work. And there were only 4 movies in the entertainment section and nothing else. No TV series or any other videos. The crew was courteous. That was the only good thing about the flight. Highly disappointed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"
Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."
Cons: "Amazing flight"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, good entertainment system and content."
Cons: "Food was pretty mediocre. I'd prefer to pay a few dollars extra for a better meal."
Pros: "Good service and good price"
Pros: "Puntuality"
Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"
Pros: "Everything. Flight was great."
Cons: "That delta operated the flight back to NY"
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."
Pros: "Everthing in the flight was good"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "People in Mexico are very nice."
Cons: "The Mexico DF airport us very crowded and you will be delayed. Avoid it if you can."
Pros: "Aeromexico provides blankets; particularly useful on this overnight flight. The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! This includes the flight map, although this was not functioning on the Calgary - Mexico City leg of my trip. Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. I paid extra for the exit row on the Calgary-Mexico City leg. Unfortunately, the cabin crew put another passenger in the seat adjacent to me, so I lost my expected room to stretch out. I'm tall, and this really affected my comfort on this long overnight flight."
Cons: "In-flight map wasn't working. Beer, scotch or red wine are not available, although other alcoholic beverages are available, apparently without charge. Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once!"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."
Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"
Cons: "Delayed more than one hour"
Cons: "2 many cancelations. 3 cancelations. 10 houra trip ends on 34 hours trip"
Pros: "Everything is better, from aircraft to service to food to the fact that they don't charge for everything. And yet, they are successful. Aeromexico is a great example of a great airline."
Pros: "Didnt let me go to the VIP lounge."
Cons: "The screen on my seat didn't work so I couldn't watch any movies. Crew was late arriving so we departed late. Check in procedure in MEX for connecting flight is a NIGHTMARE."
Cons: "I'm stuck in this huge airport because the connection time between Mexico City and my next flight to Leon was vastly underestimated. In Vancouver I was assured that one and a half hours would be sufficient but when I saw the line through immigration I realized what a joke that was. That process alone took well over two hours, followed by another hour to pick up my bag, find the correct spot to drop it off again and then re-enter the boarding area. Meanwhile, the shuttle I arranged to pick me up in Leon have one and gone. So, here I sit, exhausted, frustrated and weary, waiting for the next flight, and not knowing how I will get to my destination in the dark hours of the night. I could do with back rub and a shoulder to cry on."
